Wendy Shay Disses Afia Schwarzenegger In New Song. Rufftown Records signee, Wendy Shay has dissed her enemy, Afia Schwarzenegger in a new song.

Both Wendy and Afia have been throwing shots at each other in recent weeks after Wendy Shay took a swipe at Afia Schwarzenegger for dancing to her songs while she was performing at the launch of the Ghana Music Awards UK event. “If you work hard and God blesses you, even your enemies will dance for you,” Wendy said as she exited the stage.

After the event, Wendy Shay took to social media to post the video of Afia Schwarzenegger dancing during her performance on Instagram with the caption “Work hard till your critics become your back-up dancers.”

The video drew a response from Afia Schwar, who stated that she only danced to the song because of Shatta Wale’s verse and also tagged Wendy Shay as a drug addict and a failure. In another reply to Wendy Shay, Afia Schwar, in a video, stated that she only danced to the singer’s songs because she was drunk and thought Patapaa was the one rather performing.

“I heard Wendy Shay posted a video of me dancing to her songs on her page and labelled me a back-up dancer. I was drunk at that time and I thought Patapaa was the one performing on stage. She is aware that I was drunk because she sat on my chair and I sacked her. She knows I was sipping on some whiskey double black. I heard scopatumana on that stage. My fans should ignore reports that Wendy Shay embarrassed me on stage. Is Wendy Shay even an artiste?” she quizzed.

In a new song, Wendy Shay has thrown shots at Afia Schwar in the latest round of their beef. Wendy Shay Disses Afia Schwarzenegger In New Song.

I didn’t win VGMA Artiste of the Year because of my pride – KiDi. Hiplife artiste KiDi has blamed his failure to bag the award for Artiste of the Year at the 22nd Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) on himself.

The Lynx Entertainment signee, born Dennis Nana Dwamena, says he became too proud on the night and that might have caused him to lose out on the ultimate award to gospel diva, Diana Antwi Hamilton. KiDi, in his latest interview with Tony Best on Akoma FM, noted that it is normal that once nominated, you harbour the belief that you can win the categories and possibly win the ultimate.

But then winning the Artiste of the Year got into his head too much when he won his 3rd award on the night, he said.

“When I took the first award, I didn’t talk too much, the second too, I spoke less in my acceptance speech, but when I took the 3rd award, it boosted my confidence and at that point, I felt I was so close to winning the Artiste of the Year, the reason I said, ‘I will be back.

“But at the point, I felt God said, ‘my guy, you’re becoming too proud for my liking. The four you have received is okay, go home with it,” KiDi humorously said.

Although KiDi bagged four awards including, Afrobeats/Afropop Artist of the Year, Highlife song of the year, Afrobeats/Afropop Song of the Year and EP of the year, on the night, he couldn’t walk home the coveted prize as he highly anticipated.

Diana Hamilton has become the first female Gospel Artiste to win the Artiste of the Year at the 2021 VGMA. She beat competition from KiDi, Adina, Kuami Eugene, Medikal, Sarkodie to take home the ultimate prize. The Adom hitmaker also won three other awards on the night including Gospel Artiste of the Year, Best Gospel Song Of The Year and the Vodafone Most Popular Song of the Year. I didn’t win VGMA Artiste of the Year because of my pride – KiDi.

Thus, he noted that Ghana must be self-sufficient and prepare better to deal with any such occurrences in the future.

“… the Committee I established, under the leadership of the world-renowned Ghanaian scientist, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, to investigate Ghana’s potential as a vaccine manufacturing hub, to meet national and regional needs, has presented its preliminary report which, amongst others, recommends the establishment of a National Vaccine Institute to spearhead this development.

Video of Izu reading his suicide note before killing himself pops up. A video showing Izuchukwu Madubueze, reading a suicide note before shooting himself dead has been shared online. According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, the United States, the Nigerian entrepreneur with full name, Izuchukwu Madubueze shot himself dead over an allegation of sexual assault. Before taking his life, Izu recorded himself reading his suicide note. The video has now been shared online.

Izu can be heard saying : “I feel like it’ll be awesome to say some last words before I leave,” Izu began in the video.

He added: “In the last couple of weeks, I have seen the tweets. I have heard from several people, I’ve also seen some people who I expected a lot more from subtweeting me and I wasn’t ever given a fair chance to clear my name or explain my side of the story or verify whether any of the allegations against me were true or not.

“To my family, first of all, I apologize for bringing disgrace to your name. I love you all unconditionally from the bottom of my heart.”

“To my mum, I pray you stay strong, ” he said with a shaky voice.

“To my dad, you always said God will never give me a load that’s too heavy to carry but last two years have been the heaviest moments of my life… actually last three years have been the heaviest moments of my life.

“To my little bro, Ekene, I love you man. I wish we hadn’t grown super distant.

“To my sister, I love you so much sis. You have great things in store for you. You’re gonna be a very very great person.”

He then addressed his accusers, saying: “To Ify and Duby I wronged and who I… who said I groped them, which hurts a lot.

“To girls who posted the list, thank you for posting the list.”

Izu was referring to the list posted on Twitter where a number of men were named as people accused of sexual assault, harassment, or rape. Izu’s name was listed and he was accused of harassment.

“I mean, like I told you Nani, I can’t shoot the messenger. but your attitude not to work towards clearing up accusations was piss-poor. You denied me the opportunity to clear my name and you refused to tell me what exactly I did that was harassment, even after I provided proof that I didn’t harass this person….”

A Twitter influencer named Nanichi Anese, had on June 29, 2020, accused the 23-year-old creative designer of harassment – not rape as widely claimed by friends who were angered by Izu’s demise.

Izu reached out to Nani to find out who he had harrassed but she had sworn to protect the ladies who opened up to her so she refused to release the lady’s identity.

Izu was said to have been bombarded by calls from his friends, who queried him about the allegation.

On July 17, Izu, an Anambra State indigene later tweeted through the Crowdfire app that Izu had killed himself.

He killed himself on July 16 but the tweet appeared on Twitter on July 17. Crowdfire app allows users to schedule their posts.

Pure Akan Set To Release Nyame Mma Album On 12th August. After taking to social media to announce that his sophomore album was going to be a gospel album, Pure Akan is here with the title of the project alongside a release date and a cover art ending the hiatus after his 2017 debut Onipa Akoma. Nyame Mma, which has been in the works for close to 3 years comes with a dark and grainy cover that presents Akan engulfed by 2 women and 11 children.

Known for the dense cultural references in his music, the rapper appears wrapped in kente and a staff, connoting his ever-growing interest in Ghanaian culture. He stands in as the Linquist and mouthpiece of the forefathers and to inform the younger generation of their African values and history. Even though the news comes with no information about the tracklist or features, a tweet by producer Twistedwavex, revealed the rapper in the studio with Ayisi, which many have suspected could be a sign of the singer appearing on the album.

The album is scheduled for August 12th and we are happy to know the message Akan has in store for us. Pre-order the album here; https://li.sten.to/5ylTM5p

Ajebo Hustlers on making Kpos Lifestyle, Vol. 1

It was just different points in our lives. And we started recording from last year. We’re having fun with the music. I mean, making “Pronto” with Omah Lay. Making “Bus Stop” was just an amazing time in our lives, when we had “Barawo” out, and it was really doing numbers… So we were just super-hyped at the moment when we were recording “Bus Stop.” So it was just like we’re just making beautiful music and just expressing ourselves. It wasn’t about the metrics or just what anybody out there… It was just about what we felt good, making another point in time.

Ajebo Hustlers on making “Barawo”

“Barawo” was done sometime 2019 then we put it out 2020. It’s just more like talking about the environment, because this is a day-to-day activity that happens in Nigeria every time, because we do face police brutality and jungle justice as well. So, it’s something that has been happening since the inception of time. So at that point in our lives, we just felt like shedding lights, educating the people more about jungle justice and police brutality.

Ajebo Hustlers on working with Omah Lay on “Pronto”

That was fun, that was fun. The day we recorded we did about three songs. Yeah, we were just having fun in the studio. I mean, just playing different instrumentals and just laying down ideas and then he said he heard these beats from Shamsi that he felt like playing for us and we should just try doing something on that. And then Knowledge just started like, the intro like, “I go dey put myself in order” and all that. And it just sounded really, and it sounded like something that already existed before, like now this is the record that we should incorporate this.

Wahala: Dr UN impregnates a 17-year-old SHS girl. A 17-year-old SHS student identified as Matilda has in an exclusive interview with Ghpage TV revealed how Kwame Fordjour aka Dr UN impregnated her and failed to take responsibility.

According to her, she had gone out to enjoy with her friends at a joint and that was where she met Dr UN who was by then-popular after giving out a fake award. He expressed his intention of starting a relationship with her and taking it further by getting married to her which she also agreed and they both started going out.

Matilda told Rashad of GhPage TV that they started meeting in hotels and restaurants to eat and have fun whenever he comes to Kumasi because he had told her he stayed in Accra and only comes to Kumasi when he has a business to take care off.

Fast forward, three months ago she noticed she had missed her period, took a pregnancy test and the result came in as positive. She called Dr UN to inform him of the situation but he told her he was busy and was working on his new song so he needed his peace of mind and later started avoiding her and her calls.

The 17-year-old went on to say Dr UN called her later and told her to come and see her so they can go and see his doctor for an abortion to be carried out but she turned that option down. A video recording shared with Ghpage sees Dr UN in a meeting with Matilda and her sister who was trying to solve the matter amicably.

When he was told about the pregnancy he denied the pregnancy saying Matilda is telling lies. Matilda in the interview stated that the only thing she needs from Dr UN is to accept responsibility for the pregnancy because she doesn’t want to give birth for her child to be tagged a bastard.
